Prayer Requests 3-2-20

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 28

Of David.

To you, Lord, I call;
    you are my Rock,
    do not turn a deaf ear to me.
   For if you remain silent,
    I will be like those who go down to the pit.
Hear my cry for mercy
    as I call to you for help,
   as I lift up my hands
    toward your Most Holy Place.

Do not drag me away with the wicked,
    with those who do evil,
   who speak cordially with their neighbors
    but harbor malice in their hearts.
Repay them for their deeds
    and for their evil work;
   repay them for what their hands have done
    and bring back on them what they deserve.

Because they have no regard for the deeds of the Lord
    and what his hands have done,
   he will tear them down
    and never build them up again.

Praise be to the Lord,
    for he has heard my cry for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
    my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
   My heart leaps for joy,
    and with my song I praise him.

The Lord is the strength of his people,
    a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
Save your people and bless your inheritance;
    be their shepherd and carry them forever.

  1. Interesting that the first verse says, “You are my rock”.
    We discussed before,I usually wake up in the morning with a song on my mind.
    This morning, it was Hank Snow’s “moving on”
    I was reading Psalm 61 this morning, where it said, V. 1-2.
    “Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
    For thou has been a shelter for me”
    It hs replaced “moving On”.

    Those of you who don’t hear Southern Gospel music probably aren’t aware of that song. Is is a good, singable song.

  2. This morning, I am requesting prayer for our pastor and his wife. A few months ago, I mentioned that he had a or a series of strokes. This affected his speech as well as his ability to walk, which he can still do both but they are a struggle at times. He continues to preach and we continue to benefit from his teaching of the Word. May he be blessed in his relationship with Christ during this difficult time. He is a fine example of continuing the race in very difficult circumstances. Name is Keith.

    His wife continues to be supportive and is stepping up in several areas. You may recall requested prayer for her eyesight, which was nearly lost due to the surgery to save her eyesight. She continues to cope with that as well as helping her husband. She can follow the Scripture if she has her tablet with the print very enlarged and very near her face. She can see faces dimly. Both are busy loving the Lord and His people. May God make Himself more real to them each day and give them the joy and peace of knowing Him

  3. Today is my brother’s birthday. (Being eight years older, he is turning 67.) He and SIL (63) have had a tough year or so, with both of them having had serious health issues, including cancers that may or may not be gone, and their house fire.

    Since SIL had surgery about three weeks ago to remove a growth in a sinus cavity, I have not heard if it was cancer or not, or how she is doing. She had written that she would email me a couple days after surgery, but I haven’t heard from her. (I did send her an email asking how it went.)

    Please pray for salvation for both of them, as well as their daughter, her “husband” (a “trans man”), and my grandniece (whom I may never meet).

  4. A reminder to pray for our (extended family’s) new friend whose grandmother had dated my uncle before he died in WWII. She (J) flies back to Texas today, so prayers for uneventful travels are requested. She is a dear soul and sister in Christ, about whom I will tell you more in the future.

    Please also pray for a situation with my parents. My mom is very disorganized — has important papers mixed among stuff of no importance at all. My brother has begun searching their house for items of interest to J, who has asked (and received) permission to write a book about her grandmother and my uncle.

    Today, while my brother was at Mom & Dad’s, Mom came into the room where he was looking through things, carrying an empty box and announcing she would be throwing things out. Brother told her that now is not the time to be throwing stuff when they’re searching. She’s got financial records tucked into envelopes with personal letters, one birth certificate in a drawer with random unused clothing articles in the spare bedroom, etc… Who knows what important stuff might get tossed if she doesn’t look at all the contents of a folder before throwing it, or if she’d even understand the importance of certain things she’d find in random places.

    Prayers, too, that she won’t move things from unsearched areas into areas already searched. I doubt she would understand how doing such a thing would interfere with a systematic search for important items. This is frustrating for my brother and SIL, who live next door to them but aren’t available to do a whole-house search in one session and monitor Mom when she’s in a weeding-out kind of mood.
